God the Father is a title given to God in modern monotheist religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, in part because he is viewed as having an active interest in human affairs, in the way that a father would take an interest in his children who are dependent on him.

For your Maker is your husband?the Lord Almighty is his name?the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth (Isaiah 54:5).
God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day. Psalm 7:11
John Wesley was thirty-five when he experienced the now famous "warming" of his heart-not his mind-toward Christ, and knew in that moment he had become not merely a Christian, but something more-a lover of God. Shortly after, he penned the hymn "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," whose first verse goes like this: "Jesus, Lover of my soul/Let me to thy bosom fly." Down through the years the hymn has left many a hymnologist reaching for a more palatable translation, "the difficulty," as John Julian said, "is the term Lover as applied to our Lord." Revisions now in hymnbooks read, "Jesus, Savior of my soul" or, "Jesus, Refuge of my soul," which are touching but nothing close to what Wesley meant. He meant Lover.

As we see in John 3, the Lord came as the Bridegroom, and Him being the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world was for redeeming His bride!
John 15:15 - Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise.
Exodus 15:26 and He said: 'If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His eyes, and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon thee, which I have put upon the Egyptians; for I am the LORD that healeth thee
For me, God is all of the above and more.
I believe that God is approachable and responsive and many ways. We can receive answers from him in many unbelievable situations in our lives. His whispers in our souls, through other people or from his words. He can even talk to us through the vastness of nature. His marvelous creations.
God is also compassionate and gracious?slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Exodus 34: 6-7
How about you?
Is God for you too good to be true? Is your understanding with God became distorted by your experience in life or other people?
God says that he is patient, full of love, faithful and forgiving. Does thissound like the God you know? If not, take time to get to know Him. He is worth all your effort and you will be surprised to know that He is more than enough to quench your thirst. More than enough to satisfy your soul, more than enough to supply your needs, more than enough to make you feel loved and taken care of.
Knowing God is more than knowing about Him.
